Urbano Astuyauri Soto @ Feathered Serpent Gallery


"The Echanted World of Urbano Astuyauri Soto ". (El Mundo Encantado de Urbano Astuyari). Co-sponsored by the Consulate of Peru in Tampa, an exhibition of the work of artist Urbano Astuyauri Soto visiting from Lima, Peru.

Urbano Astuyauri is a Peruvian artist whose creations come from a long term commitment. His work is a combination of passion and pleasure in search of the rescue of the Incan culture and popular art of his country. He intensely discloses his identity through the presence of folk elements from Peruvian culture recreated in his work. His work shares both a richness of texture and creativity, and in his work, he preserves the naivety of his childhood.

The Duncan McClellan Gallery proudly presents “IN and OUT of the CAGE” with Marc Petrovic and Kari Russell-Pool!

At 5pm on Saturday, March 8th, the gallery doors will open to reveal amazing glass artistry from husband and wife, Marc Petrovic and Kari Russell-Pool, both graduates of the Cleveland Institute of Art, where the former received the prestigious Agnes Gund Memorial Scholarship.

While they have distinct approaches, they do share ideas and they have shown their work and presented demonstrations across the country and abroad. We are pleased to have them in St. Pete.

Ms. Russell-Pool takes a “watercolor approach” in creating her flame-worked glass sculpture Coloring with glass powders, and pulling her own glass rods, allows her an extraordinary control over color.

Mr. Petrovic’s “pieces revolve around ideas that both intrigue and befuddle me. While these pieces ask a lot of questions, they attempt to answer none. They simply serve as a way to contain and continue a dialogue. At the nucleus of each sculpture is an idea around which the piece grows. In a sense, the way a grain of sand aggravates the oyster enough that it creates a pearl." Here’s a video of one of Marc’s demos - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDDD3og3Lh0

Help us celebrate our First Anniversary by welcoming Tampa artist Sigrid Tidmore to the gallery! Sigrid will be featuring her Galapagos series, created while vacationing on the stunning volcanic islands. A painter/environmentalist's dream, to be sure!

Sigrid's own words give insight into her passion to depict the beauty and mystery of the world around us...

"Born into a military family, I lived in a dozen different international cultures before I was 20. The more differences I saw, the more I understood we are all one family connected to a fragile planet. I was trying to paint this idea when I was only 10.

I believe Artists are the real architects of social change. We are the magicians who see through the chaos to materialize the ideas. Every experience gives us new spells to bring to our canvas."

As always, we will be a stop on the FREE Trolley, so be sure to come in and see this beautiful show and "Celebrate!" our First Anniversary here in the 'Burg! (and remember, there is plenty of parking nearby for those who prefer to drive themselves to the ArtWalk venues!)



This is a show by our newest member artist Laurie Landry.

Midwest Tropics

My grandparents and father immigrated from Holland to the United States.
Rather than going to daycare as a tot I played in the greenhouses of our family nursery.
The vibrant color of flowers, interesting shapes of leaves (ei: the Venus Flytrap, seriously cool) and textures in nature inspire me.

As a recent transplant to Florida from my native Minnesota I've been invigorated with the "new to me" Tropics.
My pottery has a Midwest aesthetic style. However, the change in venue to St Petersburg has fueled fresh ideas for my forms and carving.

In my latest series of garden totems and pottery the Midwestern and tropical influences are melding.
My Garden Totems are a series of smaller clay elements strung together to become a larger ceramic arrangement.
In a gallery setting the Garden Totems are displayed on a wooden base. When a totem is at home in a landscape it is planted into the ground and the wooden base is not needed.
On occasion people want to display a totem indoors and a wood base is then necessary.

My functional pottery bears the same glazes and themes as my Garden Totems.
Everything that I make is hand-carved, one of a kind, made with care and fired to cone 10 for strength as well as beauty.

Turbulent Water: new paintings by Margaret Juul
Opening Reception: Saturday, March 8, 2014
6:00-9:00 p.m.
ARTicles Art Gallery
1445 Central Avenue, St. Petersburg

St. Petersburg, FL - ARTicles Art Gallery is pleased to present the painting exhibition Turbulent Water: new paintings by Margaret Juul, on March 8, 2014 at 6:00 pm. Tumbling underneath waves amidst effervescent aquatones, Juul's compositions are fresh and original expressions of the colors and patterns of water in motion. The artist uses her imagination to distill the kinetic essence of something never at rest.

Irregular shapes of green and blue cover the canvas, reminiscent of the brilliant marine hues that convey water in 19th century Japanese woodblock prints. Close inspection reveals rough, textured surfaces from the thick application of media on linen, including oil, acrylic and oil pastel, reiterating the earthly and organic nature of her subject.

Juul's artistic life has always been inspired by water. From the shores of her Long Island birthplace and Chicago’s Lake Michigan to the spectacular tropics of Tampa Bay, water has held an unwavering hold on her spirit — fluidity, intuition and reflective volatility.

"The natural world is my inspiration. I believe art represents a journey through the infinite, a realm of abstract possibilities found in the elegance of nature, time and space. My goal is to capture a moment — full of movement, life, color, scent and sound, never experienced the same way twice — communicated through the painter's brush."

As a successful professional artist and designer for more than two decades, Margaret has cultivated a long list of loyal supporters. Her work displays prominently in a wide range of locales — from celebrity homes, corporate lobbies to international commercial and hospitality sites.One of the high points of Margaret’s career came after the Iraq Museum International requested Rough Wake for Baghdad’s 2010 International Poster Exhibition. The painting remained on display for nearly two years, applying Margaret’s unique perspective to an area of the world renowned for ancient culture.

Juul began her training in fine art studies in 1988 at Chicago’s Columbia College. Since that time, her work has been featured in numerous publications and exhibitions and is included in collections around the country. She lives and works in Saint Petersburg, FL, dividing her time between her painting studio and Trinity Gallery, where she has been providing art consultation since 2011.

An opening reception for the exhibition will be held on March 8th, 6-9 pm. The exhibition will be on view until April 5, 2014. For more information, contact the gallery at 727-898-6061.
